Next set coming up GD
That's beautiful pair of pix David. I love it when water is like glass. I wanted to take some photos yesterday en route, where the loch is acting like a mirror, but the problem is stopping as the road isn't always suitable.
This time - I have the correct hill names...unlike last week. I will get around to correcting them at some point...
Intended doing a couple of Corbetts, but due to my stupidity, I had no maps and the batteries didn't charge properly, so, only having a compass which needs a map, I decided to be sensible (for a change) and only do the first one. Meall Tairneachan.
Nice easy approach from the Foss Baryte Mine road, north of Aberfeldy. This was on the way back and the sky was quite pretty by then
Looking north - nice clouds!
Looking north east to the Beinn a Ghlo hills which I did around this time last year. Bit too hazy to get a really good shot of them unfortunately
Looking west from the summit trig to Schiehallion ( the HIll of the Fairies) - Aberfeldy's iconic Munro.
Looking southe over the little loch - nice moody sky!
The Lawers and Glen Lyon hills, just to the south of Schiehallion
Heading back along the ridge, I startled a little flock....
It's ok - we're safe!
Pano looking south. Sheep had gone safely round the little 'knoll' on the left! The Lawers, Glen Lyon hills to the right, with Schiehallion on the far right. Hmmm - is that Hosta's boulder there?
Peacock butterfly on the way back
I stopped to get a pic of Ben More and Stob Binnein (the two iconic Crianlarich Munros) on the way back along beautiful Loch Tay. The Lawers hills are on the right hand side of this road, but I couldn't get a good enough place to stop and take one of them unfortunately.
